Highlights From Reddit's /r/place Experiment

On April Fools Day, Reddit launched a social experiment forum where users could draw on a blank canvas by placing a pixel square tile, available in 16 different colors and dispensed every 10 minutes, much like the long-running crowddrawing site Drawball. In the next 72 hours, what ensued on /r/place were a series of impressive collage artworks created by both collaborative and competitive efforts involving tens of thousands users, and of course, quite a few moments of hilarity and a whole lot of data analysis. Check out the timelapse video of the event below and scroll down for more highlights!
